Matthew Molus's Note:
Delicious and very EZ to make. These are very addictive, maybe you should make a double batch and have the whole family over for a barbecue.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 (3 lb) pork spare rib racks
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons freshly cracked black pepper
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh oregano
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
- 6 tablespoons orange juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
- 4 dashes Tabasco sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1Preheat oven to 225º F.
- 2In a food processor or blender, combine the paste ingredients and blend until smooth.
- 3Dry the ribs with paper towels, then rub them thoroughly with the paste.
- 4Place the ribs on two baking sheets and slow roast for 3-5 hours, or until red juice comes out when you poke the meat with a fork and the meat is tender and pulls easily from the bone. The longer you cook the ribs the better, just don't let them dry out.
- 5Remove the ribs from the oven.
- 6They can go right onto the grill, stand out for a while, or be refrigerated, covered, for up to 2 days.
- 7While the ribs are roasting, combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well; set aside.
- 8Light a fire in your grill.
- 9You want a very low charcoal fire with the rack set as high as possible.
- 10Put the ribs on the grill and let them stay there as long as your patience allows.
- 11A light crust on the outside is the goal, and, depending on your fire, it can be achieved in 5 minutes per side or take up to 30 minutes per side.
- 12If you're into prolonging your guests' agony.
- 13Of course, the longer the ribs cook, the better.
- 14Brush them with the sauce during the last minute on the grill.
- 15Cut the ribs apart between the bones and serve with the remaining barbecue sauce on the side.
